- An induction linear accelerator that produces an energetic (5 to 20 GeV) beam of heavy (130 to 238 amu) ions is a prime candidate as a driver for inertial fusion. The required accelerator output parameters for an ion species can be determined from the target requirements for a given fusion energy yield. The cost and efficiency of various accelerator configurations to produce the required output parameters can be determined to aid in the selection of the lowest cost accelerator design option. In this study, we compare the cost of various accelerator configurations that will produce various target fields and fusion powers using cesium 133 ions with those using mercury 200 ions, and report extensively on some 600 MJ target yield results.
